77. 4Qs with Joe Petricca

Joe Petricca at SOFF 2017.

When I interviewed Joe Petricca on this podcast about his career and his short film A Meditation, I found out exactly why his film won awards.  Joe has spent 25 years in academia at the American Film Institute while working as a professional screenwriter on the side, always with an eye on filmmaking again.  It would have been shocking had A Meditation not turned out so well.

And it would be just as shocking if his DIF4Q didn’t impress.

What is DIF4Q?  It’s the Discover Indie Film Four Questions.

    • Name your favorite film of all time (limit 3)
    • Name a film you think is underrated
    • Name a film you think is overrated
    • Name a lesser-known film that you think people should seek out

Joe is a lifelong lover of cinema, so I knew his answers were going to be great.  What were they?  (I list them now so that people can search this website for who mentioned which films.)

  • Favorites: The Magnificent Ambersons, Carrie, Holy Motors
  • Underrated: The Great Wall
  • Overrated:  Blade Runner
  • Seek Out:  Tape
